When you want to put a little more “oomph” in the hairdo of the full lace wig you are wearing, it all begins in the shower, when you wash your hair. What you use to prep your hair will make all of the difference in the world, when it comes to the end result. So, start by choosing an appropriate volumizing shampoo and hair conditioner. These typically are very light and will give the hair of your full lace wig the moisture it needs without weighing it down. These types of shampoos and conditioners can be easily found either at your local drugstore or your favorite salon.
Once the hair of your full lace wig has been thoroughly shampooed and conditioned, the next step is to add a styling agent. Products like volumizing hair mousses, hair gels, creams or liquid hair setters, will prep the hair of your full lace wig beautifully, for the styling that is yet to come. Note: When applying the volumizing products, it is best to apply them to the beginning (roots area) of the hair, as this is where your volume will come from.
Avoid applying products to the ends of the hair as this may weigh the hair down. If you need to detangle your hair, be sure to comb (not brush) the hair, starting from the bottom of the hair and working your way up to the roots. Avoid pulling or tugging on the hair.After applying your product(s), you will need to dry your hair, with a hair dryer set on low to medium heat.

1) - Adding Volume with a Hair Dryer
If your full lace wig have limp, curly hair, use a diffuser attached to a blow dryer to define your curls and also use your fingers to lift the hair at the roots. Remember to be gentle with your curls - you want to create hair volume, not frizz! A root lifting spray can be used to finish your style just before it is completely dry.
If you have straight hair or want to create a smoother style, use a blow dryer (on a low setting) to first help remove some of the moisture. Try flipping your head over for a few minutes, this really helps to lift the roots, giving your hair volume!
Next, you will want to section your hair and begin to blow it dry while using a round brush. With the directional nozzle of your hair dryer, start with the bottom sections of your full lace wig hair and work your way up to the top sections of the hair. Be sure to create lift and tension at the roots while drying. Before you move on to the next section, use your fingers to gently lift the roots away from the scalp and aim the dryer directly onto them with a cool shot of air.
Continue to do this until you have finished your hair.
Depending on your hair length, and the style you'd like to achieve, flip the brush in or out at the ends of the hair. Create curls by holding the brush around your hair and focusing the heat on the hair around the brush.
2) - Adding Volume with a Flat Iron
Volume can also be achieved when you use a (ceramic) flat iron to style your full lace wig hair. Many top stylists love to use this method, as it saves lots of time, and can also help hold the hairstyle longer.
To do this, use a flat iron no larger than 1 1/2" width. Taking your full lace wig hair into one-inch sections, clamp the flat iron over the hair and turn your wrist away from you. Use your opposite hand to flip the hair over the iron, if needed, and rotate the flat iron one full turn. Pull the flat iron straight down to create a curl. Continue to do this until you have created the amount of curls you desire.
When you are done, flip your head over and lightly shake your head to allow the curls to separate, also use your fingers lightly to gently split the curls. Flip your head back and you should have fabulous body in the hair of your full lace wig! At this time, a root lifting spray may be used to give more lift to the roots of the hair of your full lace wig.
3) - Adding Volume with Hot Rollers or Steam rollers
Hot rollers are also another fabulous way to create volume. For a quick volumizing styling trick, have the hair of your full lace wig completely dry. Roll hair around large rollers, beginning with the hair that is just above the ears. Work your way up until all of the top sections of your full lace wig hair are in rollers. Once the rollers are cool, gently remove rollers, allowing the curls to fall loosely. Flip your head over, and gently brush out the hair. Flip back up and smooth the hair. At this time you can continue to style your hair as usual.
Note: When using hot rollers or steam rollers, make sure the ends of the hair are correctly tucked in.
